Via the profile pages, ASA members and others who create an account with ASA may view, update, or edit information specific to that account. Whether you are an ASA member or a non-member, you must be logged into the site to access and edit this information.
Credit Card Payments
ASA's technology vendors use industry-standard encryption to protect consumer data and privacy when accepting credit or debit card payments over the web. ASA uses Authorize.Net LLC (www.authorize.net) for the direct processing of electronic card payments for products, fees, subscriptions, and donations that we accept via our web site. Your credit card information is immediately transmitted to Authorize.Net via an encrypted connection to a Authorize.Net server. ASA does not retain information concerning your credit card issuer, card number except the last four digits, or expiration date, and Authorize.Net does not provide ASA with access to this information. Once a transaction has been approved, we retain access to the last four digits of your card number, the card holder name, and the purchase amount.
